Journal Entry 1 by Torgin from Mülheim an der Ruhr, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Saturday, February 04, 2012

5 out of 10

In six parts Gubek follows the history of Sudan:
* The Ancestral Voices
* The Essence of Freedom
* The Colonial Sudan
* The Dictatorial Regime of Post Colonial Sudan
* The Liberation Struggle
* Journey to Exile: The Struggle Continues
Violence is a major theme, and to be honest I don't like it, especially if combined with glorification. I rather liked those poems concerned with the land itself and the ancient history. And as often with modern poetry I'm not happy with – simply spoken – formal aspects as I don't feel that a certain number of words become poetry by just writing them from to top to down instead of left to right ...

After reading some of this poems my first thought was, what Aldawen wrote:...I don't feel that a certain number of words become poetry by just writing them from to top to down instead of left to right...
However I liked some of the poems, especially Crucifixion and Fatherhood, though they were very sad.
